Tracking the usage of your Amazon Web Services (AWS) and estimating their costs can be a challenge, but with help from a cloud monitoring tool like Applications Manager, you can tackle this challenge with confidence. By aggregating the financial statistics of all AWS resources you use from Amazon Cloudwatch, Applications Manager presents a unified view of costs incurred with a tax breakdown on the Amazon billing console. This makes it easier for your teams to gain visibility into the cost and usage of AWS products.
Applications Manager lets you view AWS monetary data as graphical representations for easy understanding¾particularly stats about expenditure and forecast, and services and taxes.
Expenditure and forecast graphs show costs incurred through a specific day of the month, and help you forecast costs through the entire month. Services and tax graphs give you the breakdown of the total cost of AWS services and taxes levied for the services.
"Month-to-Date Top Services by Spend" graphs provide you with extensive financial information at a glance. Knowing where you spend most of your money and making informed decisions about your monthly AWS budget helps you to stick to your budget.
Applications Manager helps keep your budget in check by notifying you whenever it extends beyond a specific value. You can set threshold values for various cost attributes, such as individual service cost, month-to-date expenditure, forecast cost, month-to-date services cost, and month-to-date tax. You'll receive alerts whenever the set values are exceeded.
Applications Manager provides comprehensive reports on various attributes to help you make educated decisions about AWS. Analyze your consumption trends with trend analysis reports that include historical data, heat charts, and statistical analysis.
